The Munsif Daily (Urdu: منصف روزنامہ) is an Urdu language newspaper published from Hyderabad in India. Its Editor-in-chief is Mohammad Abdul Jaleel.[1] The Munsif Daily is the largest circulated Urdu newspaper in India.[2][3][4]


The paper was owned by Mahmood Ansari, and after his death in 1994 it was looked after by his elder brother, Masood Ansari.[5] As Masood Ansari fell ill, the newspaper was sold to Khan Lateef Khan in 1996, who became editor in chief.[6]

Under the editorship of Khan Lateef Khan, many changes were made in the Munsif Daily such as the introduction of a fully coloured version.[6]
